  • Wild Hog Canoe Race enjoys record turnout

    Though the ride never gets any easier, the numbers keep growing.

    The Wild Hog Canoe Race continues to draw new participants to the charity event – a grueling 15-mile trek down the Waccasassa River, where canoers and kayakers paddle, drag, lift, wade and swim their way past snakes and alligators from six miles west of Bronson to the Waccasassa Bridge at U.S. Highway 19 near Gulf Hammock. The 40th Anniversary edition Saturday was no different.

    The School Board of Levy County has made the County the first rural county to partner with the University of Florida for its dual enrollment program.

    Dual enrollment courses allow high school juniors and seniors to take free college courses that offer credits toward a college degree while also satisfying high school credit requirements in the course subject area.

  • Allow me to reintroduce myself

    Could they flip the switch when it counted most?

    It was a question that haunted Chiefland softball coaches and supporters.

    Would “senioritis” and the distraction of college softball scholarships and the rest of it deter from the drive that put three rings on the seniors’ fingers?

    Would the players fail to peak in time to earn a fourth straight trip to the state finals Vero Beach?

  • Defending the crown

    They met four times this year, but the fate of the Chiefland and Trenton softball teams’ respective seasons was largely determined by a short sequence of plays during a couple of innings last Tuesday in the regional championship game.

  • Not without a fight

    The Chiefland baseball team proved itself a plucky bunch this season with its collection of comeback wins and its youthful competitive fight.

  • CPD traffic stops net drug arrests
